Say what you want about delays, but there has to be a moment when developers working on a product breathe a collective sigh of relief when they're granted more time.
This appears to be the case with the hotly anticipated Darksiders 2
from Vigil Games, which was originally slated to be hitting retail shelves for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on June 29. The new date pushes it back to some time in August for "polish and bug fixing".
"This is great news for the team at Vigil, because it allows additional time for polish and to ensure that all aspects of Darksiders II meet the high-quality bar the team is targeting," stated a post on the newly crafted Darksiders 2 website
"In game development, more time is always a good thing for quality and the Vigil team is dedicated to providing the definitive Darksiders experience."
The post comes packaged with a candid Q&A from fans that shuts down any relation to the recent Vigil layoffs or development of the Wii U version as far as the delay is concerned.
Provided this extra time works in favour of the final product, a little more than a month is definitely something most fans should be able to deal with.
